Register for 2023-24 Leadership Northwest Indiana program
The Leadership Institute at Purdue Northwest (PNW) has opened applications for the 2023-24 Leadership Northwest Indiana (LNI) program.
The 8-month program will include monthly in-person professional development training and activities, a 360-leadership assessment and custom one-on-one coaching. The program begins in September 2023 and runs through May 2024. LNI provides evidenced-based learning experiences to strengthen leadership skills and give strategies to be a better leader in the community, workplace and at home.
Leadership Northwest Indiana is well-regarded as a great place for professionals to build their networks, as they learn from the real-world challenges other participants bring to the discussions. All LNI sessions are led by leadership experts from both the academic and business world so that participants get the latest research-based leadership content and the most effective skills to add to their tool kit.
“Our mission is simple: develop and support leaders wherever they are on their leadership journey,” said Sheila Matias, executive director of the Leadership Institute at PNW. “We aim to help leaders and managers strengthen their ‘leadership muscle’ by building their tool kit with skills developed through our researched-based program and customized approach.”
We want all participants to understand the impact that they can have when they intentionally and purposefully work on their leadership.
“Anyone with a passion for development and growth should consider the LNI program,” added Jane Thomas, assistant academic director at the Leadership Institute at PNW and associate professor of human resource management and organizational behavior at PNW. “We want all participants to understand the impact that they can have when they intentionally and purposefully work on their leadership.”
“I think the biggest asset to LNI are the participants,” said Mekisha Richardson, assistant director of the Leadership Institute at PNW. “We recruit leaders from various sectors of the business community in Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland.”
“I recommend that other professionals take the LNI course,” said Orlando A. Drummond, Program Quality Director at Boys & Girls Club of Greater Northwest Indiana. “One of the most beneficial components of the LNI Program is engaging the varying levels of professionals in the program. Having diverse perspectives on topics and situations from different domains provides participants with comprehensive leadership understanding, challenges, and engagement opportunities, to best position us to handle our unique situations beyond the program.”
